Iberdrola has installed 11 additional turbines at its La Ventosa wind power complex in Mexico, increasing the project's capacity by 22 MW and taking it up to 102 MW.

The 2 MW Gamesa G80 wind turbines stand 78 meters tall. The project, executed by Iberdrola's engineering and construction subsidiary, also entailed the upgrade of the wind farm’s grid connection and the 230 kV transmission line owned by the Federal Commission for Electricity. Gamesa says the extension helped create an average of 250 construction jobs.

The La Ventosa wind farm is located in the municipality of Juchitan de Zaragoza (Oaxaca), on the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. When commissioned back in 2009, it became Iberdrola’s first wind farm in Mexico. The company says it currently operates 230 MW of wind power capacity in Mexico. In addition to La Ventosa, the company has two other wind farms in operation: the 102 MW La Venta III and 26 MW Bii Nee Stipa.
